December 18, 2017 CRT Stakeholders and Friends, We are happy to report that we've made very good progress and are up to 76 cosponsors on H.R. 3730 (see here). That's an addition of 24 cosponsors in less than two weeks! That kind of growth lets Congressional leadership know that this issue has solid support and that support is increasing. Our bill is being included in legislative discussions and a CBO (Congressional Budget Office) score is coming. If this week's legislative actions don't include our bill, our next opportunity will be getting included in larger bills currently scheduled for January. All options are being looked at and we will keep you updated. Our job as advocates right now is to keep generating cosponsors and asking members to tell their leadership that H.R. 3730 must be passed. While not easy, we can make this happen if we dedicate ourselves to politely persisting with Congress as we have in the past. Contact information and suggested messaging can be found at Thanks to everyone for all the work and let's keep that cosponsor list growing by continuing your calls and emails to Congress! Regards, Don Donald E. Clayback Executive Director | NCART Office 716-839-9728 | Cell 716-913-4754 [email protected] | P.S. If you know of any other stakeholders that would like to receive updates like these, have them join our mailing list here!
